Festival Too’s first weekend on the Tuesday Market Place was a game of two halves, with the sun shining on Friday (albeit through an overcast sky at times), and Saturday being a little damp, but not enough to dampen the spirits.

Friday night kicked off with stalwart Mark Purdy, who is now part of the furniture by all accounts.

Following on, we had a DJ set from Robbie B, who had never performed for such a large crowd, and the nerves showed at the start, but they soon vanished once he’d got into the groove.

Kelly Llorenne took to the stage next, known for being the lead vocalist for N-Trance, who’s massive hit Set You Free went down a storm.

Rozalla kept the momentum going with a powerful set, which of course included Everybody’s Free.

Finally, it was K Klass who rounded off the evening, performing many hits from their extensive back catalogue.

Saturday saw quite a crowd gathered early on, and it was easy to see why Judge Jules was invited to return to the Festival Too stage (the only act ever to receive such an invitation apparently), but it was down to the College of West Anglia to kick things off, and a great job they did too.

Next up it was DJ L.I.AM, the youngest ever solo performer to grace the stage, understandably it was a nervy start, but that was very short lived, and it was clear that he’s a natural.

Amber Prothero performed a cracking set, with a mix of covers and original material, and kept the momentum going.

Fleur East’s DJ set suffered a slight technical hitch, but was soon under way, and she put out as quoted by Mark Purdy as “banger after banger".

Finally, it was Judge Jules, who along with a group of amazing musicians whipped the crowd into a frenzy, and the set went over the 11pm curfew, but no one in Tuesday Market Place minded one bit.
